The Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic) - by David Emerald

The Power of TED* by David EmeraldThe Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic) offers a powerful alternative to the Karpman Drama Triangle, with its roles of Victim, Persecutor, and Rescuer. The Empowerment Dynamic (TED) provides the antidote roles of Creator, Challenger and Coach to the toxic relationship dynamics of the DDT and how to make the shift happen between them. Central to the shift is a transformation in mindset from a Victim Orientation to a Creator Orientation. The book is illustrated to present essential models to the reader in a simple and accessible way.


The Power of TED* is a fable on personal leadership. This simple, friendly and engaging story conveys a meeting of three characters in a life-transforming conversation on a beach: the central character, David, a fellow named Ted (the embodiment of The Empowerment Dynamic), and Sophia who shares of her experience in making shift happen in her own life.


This updated and revised edition includes a new Preface; slight modifications to the original story; additional content in "The Empowerment Dynamic" and "Shift Happens" chapters; and an Appendix containing a synopsis of the frameworks and key concepts contained in the book.

“I'm so grateful for the role you've played in helping America create what we're seeing today. Thinking back to when I first read your book, your work raised our consciousness, so that we could articulate what we wanted from our political leaders. I'm sure you already know this, but you're one of the people responsible to changing the dialogue, in a big way, so just thought I would say thanks.”
